The Pivot to Asia with Kurt Campbell and Susan Shirk

What's in a word? Former diplomat and UCSD alumnus Kurt Campbell tells about the unintended consequences of choosing "pivot" to describe a new approach to China during his years in Secretary Clinton's State Department. Campbell shares other insightful anecdotes about relations between China and Japan and the release of Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest by the Myanmar generals with Susan Shirk, also a former diplomat who now runs the 21st Century China Program at the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies at UC San Diego.
